Immersive Virtual Reality Hub

 

Escalating concerns and speaking up: This virtual reality (VR) resource was developed by the SuppoRTT team in Health Education England for doctors returning to training, which uses a clinical scenario to explore the topic of Escalating Concerns and Speaking Up, skills that are increasingly recognised as contributing to the quality and safety of care for patients. Learners will explore techniques and develop skills in a safe, virtual environment.

Remote consultation: This is an immersive 360* video resource based around remote consultation. It was originally developed with shielding/displaced trainees in mind; however, this will be a useful resource for anyone consulting remotely. It addresses key skills including communication, using the multidisciplinary team, clinical management and safeguarding, as well as offering the opportunity to 'step inside' the consultation from the patient's perspective!
